Gabriel surprised Sara with a heartfelt poem he wrote to commemorate the occasion:

“To The Love of My Life”

Dear beloved wife,

From the time I met you

And from that moment on

You set my heart in flame.

And today, 50 years later,

That flame is still alive and burning.

It was a blessing, sent to me from above

Today, as we celebrate

Our golden wedding anniversary

With our children and grandchildren

Family and friends,

It is something to remember

That brings back beautiful memories.

On Sept. 15, 1968,

As you walking toward the altar

Of St. Nicholas Church

In the city of Cosenza, Italy,

Your heart was pounding

And my arms were stretching to embrace you

And holding to my heart forever.

Happy anniversary dear wife,

My very best friend,

For caring and sharing

In ways all at your own,

For making me so proud of you.

It was worth the time of waiting

And everything you do.

This brings many thanks and wishes

And a special love to you.

With my perennial love,

Happy anniversary Sara.

I loved you yesterday.

I love you today.

I love you tomorrow.

I love you forever.
